Take this however you want, Josh, but you totally look like your 14 or something.

got around to seeing 500 Days of Summer. For the most part a good movie for it's genre, but still has some heavy-handed writing. Her name was AUTUMN? PAAAAHLEASE

The point is: that movie has the HAPPIEST ending ever.... Autumn is hotter than Summer, and thats a lesson to take home with you.

I loved that movie. Zooey is freakin' adorable. Plus, I totally sympathized with the guys(I forget his name) situation, as I was in a similar one awhile back.

Happy Birthday, man. You definitely "contribute" to the boards.
Mine's next week. It's never a big thing, and that's OK with me. My wife and son do stuff for me, and everyone else either forgets or doesn't care.
I remember when the boards used to list everyone's birthday at the bottom. I wonder why that stopped. Someone not like it? Or it was just a wasted line on the page? Hmmm.

Gorgeous backyard garden, Grim!!  Must be nice to come home that and and then follow it, probably literally, with a 'home sweet home'. =)
I'd kill for a nice backyard, I think it'll be the only way to counter my hate for bugs is a pretty place for them. ;P
Love your pooch too,  I want him.  Wanna switch pooches?
Thanks! Gardening is my true #1 hobby. Truth be told, it's more a way of life than a hobby. I can disappear out there for hours on end. It truly is my sanctuary.
Bugs are fascinating when you take the time to learn about them. I get so many different types of critters in my yard that I pretty much HAD to study up on them. I still hate mosquitoes, though.

What kind of dog am I switching for? One of those little purse dogs? Vlad(The Impaler!) would eat it for breakfast. Plus, Nan would be pissed if I traded off the dog.

I haven't posted up a pic in awhile so here goes.
A picture I took of myself with the timer on the camera. I'm sure I looked like an idiot to anyone walking by as I set up the camera, pressed the button, then ran to my chair and posed. I did it several times to see what I could get. I took this in my garden. It looks fantastic in the Fall(and always, IMHO).


This right here is a picture of the Best. Dog. Evar. His name is Vlad, and he rocks.

You people HAD to mention GIA. I loved that site, and the forums over there. Good times. Like a lot of others, I kept checking over and over to see if they would come back. I was quite bummed.
2077  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan's influence on your gaming life on: October 18, 2010, 09:46:52 AM
As I don't visit many gaming sites besides this one, it IS influential. To be honest, though, I read LOTS of reviews of a game I'm interested in. No way would I trust just one review, even from here. I've gotten to know the tastes of the different people here, and several do not jive with mine.
The boards are actually more important to me,than the site itself. I've learned about all sorts of games that I didn't even know existed, rpg or not.
Plus, I just love discussing things with like minded people. This is the only gaming forum I participate in. Heck, I've been around for a LONG time now(since around the inception or shortly thereafter). It can't help but be influential, if only in a small way.

I started up Bayonetta. I had played the demo a couple times, but holy cow was that tame compared to the real deal. I imagine they didn't want to scare people away. This game is completely ridiculous. I just want to fight and beat the crap out of monsters, but it keeps injecting silly story scenes and such. WTF is up with the Joe Pesci wannabe? I hope the music improves(changes?), too, as I don't like it at ALL.

The music in PS III was a total downgrade from the first two games. Heck, even the graphics looked "odd" compared to 2.
Good thing IV fixed all this.
except for the final dungeon. ugh

Thanks a ton, guys!
We've got a DS that plays GBA games, so it doesn't matter either way. He's also not picky about graphics. He's played through the Mario Galaxy games, Loved Metroid Zero Mission, and is now playing Super Mario World.
He can get by with just one game, right? It seems like they always seem to be released in pairs. Why is that?

2081  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / My kid wants to play Pokemon - Where does he start? on: October 16, 2010, 01:08:16 PM
Ok, so he sees some other kids at school playing with Pokemon cards and decides he wants some. Fine.
I thought I would get him one of the video games, too, but there are so many.
Where should someone who is new to Pokemon start?

You guys mentioning Bill Cosby are spot on. His stuff about parenting is damn funny because it's so true.
2083  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: October 16, 2010, 09:35:35 AM
OK, so NOW I'm done with Other M. Played for about 15 hours. Epilogue included
Code:
Took me numerous tries to beat that giant...whatever it was. And all that was just for a freakin' helmet?! Samus = softy
My item % was only 41%! Ugh. I would actually continue on to see how high I could get that # if I didn't have other games I want to play.

Carlin is/was awesome. His humor is just as relevant today as it ever was. Especially his religious diatribes.
I like Lewis Black, but the "yelling all the time" shtick is getting a bit old.
Steven Wright  is great.
Seinfeld is still doing his thing, and totally funny.
I don't normally like people who do impressions, but that one dude is awesome. Hmm, what's his name?
*searches the googleweb*
Frank Caliendo! He's funny. And damn talented.
2085  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: October 14, 2010, 09:23:01 AM
Metroid: Other M is finished(sort if). I may mess around a bit to see what I can find.
I actually really liked it, despite some major flaws. I was fine with Samus, but everyone and everything else I didn't like so much. The story really got ridiculous at the end there.
While the environmental sounds/music were OK, I still wish it had a "real" soundtrack.
The gameplay was pretty darn good, and most of the boss battles were well done.

I'll probably start up Bayonetta and play that until I get LoS for my birthday.

BTW, my son finished Zero Mission. He loved it. I'll get him playing some of the other Metroid games, but for now he wants to play Super Mario World. I'll DL it on the Wii, assuming it's available.
